This ensemble of three towers in South Olivais, destined to low income dwellers, is characterized by formal simplicity and clarity, and the attention to detail in the design of the façade.The common balconies, associated to the vertical access ways, indicate a search for communal living and the apartments display a clear hierarchy between private and public domains. Each apartment is designed around a balcony that connects the kitchen, living room and master bedroom, resuming the subject of exterior space as an element of social integration, already present in the common areas.
